Wescott Hall at FSU, Tallahassee, FL

  Two different post processed versions of the same photo taken this past weekend at Wescott Hall, Florida State University in Tallahassee, FL.

Both photos are derived from the same original photo shot with a Nikon D5100 with Nikkor 18-55 kit lens.

The first image was processed with several Photoshop and Topaz plugins to create a crisp and colorful watercolor-like appearance. The second one was processed with Nik Software Color EFX Pro and Viveza along with French Kiss Textures to achieve the look of a waterstained oil color painting.

Courtyard at the High Battery, Charleston, SC

Shot on my trip last weekend to Charleston, SC at the foot of the city in the historic High Battery. I was walking along the waterfront promenade and caught a glimpse of this lovely courtyard with a real gas lantern in the archway, like those that burn outside most of the historic homes around this part of Charleston.

Shot with Nikon D5100 and 28-135 Nikkor lens. Processed with Nik Color EFX Pro, Topaz Adjust and Leslie Nicole’s French Kiss Textures.
